Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Geography
Description The MA Program in Geography is designed to train students broadly in geographical approaches to understanding social and human-environment relations, with emphasis on how contemporary processes affect spatial relations across the range of scales from the local to the global. Course work and faculty expertise will expose students to a range of approaches to geographical analysis, including planning perspectives, a variety of critical and applied approaches in human geography, and geospatial data analysis. Students will be encouraged to develop a sophisticated and rigorous understanding of geographical processes through an examination of various current theoretical perspectives and research methodologies and through exposure to diverse empirical material. The training offered by the program will prepare students who wish to pursue careers in areas where the ability to examine and analyze the spatiality of social and human/environment relations is an asset, or continue to the PhD level in Geography, Planning or a related discipline.
